Volcom Europe's Axel Cruysberghs wins Damn Am Costa Mesa!

 

FULL RECAP:

The Skatepark of Tampa 2014 'Damn Am' presented by Volcom and DVS was going off this past weekend when our friends from the Skatepark of Tampa traveled to our headquarters here in Costa Mesa, CA to hold the first contest of their 2014 'Damn Am' season. With over 130 hungry ams ready to show what they got, you could tell the weekend was going to be insane! In practice alone tricks were going down that you would normally see pros do and skaters from all over brought their own bag of tricks with their own style. Watch the Day 1 and 2 recaps from the SPoT crew and check out some photos shot by Volcom ambassador Arto Saari.

DVS gave out a special award for the skater who was having the most fun, and it was pretty clear that that skater was Andy Anderson who duck walked up the stairs and bluntslid down the handrail in his run. He received a one of a kind deck handmade by Clint Peterson as the DVS 'All in good fun' award and deserved every part of it!

For the Best Trick contest presented by DVS, Diamond Grind Coping installed a special gap out rail on our stairs for the contest and everyone literally destroyed it! More photos of some of the insane tricks that went down below!

Finals Day Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Congratulations to Soli Bailey, 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion! Finals Day at the Volcom Pipe Pro was unpredictable! We kicked off the morning early with the two remaining heats of Round 3, then we immediately got into Round 4 competition. Waves started off slow as the sun rose over Sunset Elementary, but it wasn’t long before sets started rolling in and guys started dropping some big scores. The first 9-point ride went to Brazil’s Adriano De Souza on a heavy Backdoor wave in his first heat of the competition to secure himself into Round 4. Along with Adriano, Ian Crane, Benji Brand, and Luke Shepardson advanced to the next round. Round 4 saw similar off-beat scores from the inconsistent, yet improving sets, but boys made it happen. Brian Toth kicked off Heat 2 with a solid 6-point ride, while in the last minute of the heat, Kiron Jabour dropped to third place after Soli Bailey secured solid 6.13 score. Heat 3 we saw Mitch Coleborn bag a solid Pipe wave earning himself a 6.17 to push himself into the lead, and right behind him, Koa Smith took off on a similar Pipe wave, although not as deep as Coleborn, and earned himself a 5-point ride. John John Florence once again delivered, dropping a 7.5 score right off the bat, then following it up with a 5.17 and 6.83 to hold the heat. Also getting through Heat 4 was Hawaii’s Hank Gaskell. Heat 5 saw Brazil’s David do Carmo pull off a rocky bottom turn on a Pipe wave and miraculously got spit out with his hands in his air to earn a well-deserved 6.83, while crowd-favorite Mason Ho surprisingly went down due to lack of waves in the heat. The next heat saw more upsets with Makuakai Rothman being knocked out, as well as Yago Dora, who has been in-form the whole event. But it was Bruce Irons, Aritz Aranburu, Lucas Silveira, Luke Shepardson, Adriano De Souza, and Makai McNamara who all coupled good enough scores to move into the Quarterfinals. During the Quarterfinals, the side wind had slightly picked up and turned things a bit messier in the lineup, but there were still some gems to be had. Soli Bailey nabbed a 6.17 on a clean Backdoor right, to add to his previous 4.0, and an on-fire Leandro Usuna from Argentina grabbed a couple mid-range scores, both enough to advance them into the Semifinals. Heat 2 saw slower wave conditions and increased wind as John John Florence, Griffin Colapinto, Mitch Coleborn, and Brian Toth tried battling through the conditions in any way possible. While they were hoping for barrels, it turned out to be turns that prevailed as John John and Griffin each found a Backdoor wave which delivered their advancement. Quarterfinal Heat 3 went nearly 15 minutes before anyone had caught a decent wave, and it was Bruce Irons who delivered the first punch on a smaller Backdoor barrel to receive a well-earned 6.33 score. Along with Bruce, it was David do Carmo to roll into the already-stacked Semifinal heats. Heat 4 was another one for turns, with a sneaky tube seen by Artiz Aranburu. While it was another low-scoring heat with the winds affecting the conditions, Aranburu dropped some heavy turns and advanced with a 11.34 and Adriano De Souza advanced with a 7.50. And there it was, the Semifinals were set! Semifinal 1 saw Australia's Soli Bailey, Argentina's Leandro Usuna, Hawaii's John John Florence, and USA's Griffin Colapinto. John John drew first blood with a couple playful hooks on a Backdoor right, but it was Soli Bailey to find a barrel at Pipe to get the early lead with a 5.0. Things went relatively quiet, and towards the end of the heat, John John was sitting in fourth position and grabbed a one-turn Backdoor right, but it wasn't enough. Soli Bailey dropped a huge 8.17 score near the five-minute mark, and in the dying seconds of the heat, Griffin Colapinto found a clean Backdoor barrel, barely sneaking out the doggy dog, to earn a 7.37, securing his spot in the finals. Semifinal 2 competitors picked up the heat and competition went fierce. An in-rhythm Bruce Irons wowed the fans with a 6.77 barrel, and David do Carmo dropped two solid turns on a Backdoor set wave to receive a 5.83. While Aritz Aranburu and David do Carmo were able to get some solid scores, it was Adriano De Souza who advanced to the Finals, along with Bruce Irons who managed to drop a near-perfect 8.93 score. THE FINALS With the resurgence of Bruce, the competitive spirit of Adriano, the rookie-hunger of Griffin, and the underdog-hopes of Soli, the final was truly exciting to watch. It started off with a strong paddle battle between Bruce and Adriano for priority, then saw Soli snag a mid-range 5.67 Backdoor tube. With the wind magically switching to slight offshore during the final, it had seemed luck was on their side, but the boys had to wait as a lack of waves keep them searching for a score. A clean-up set caught Soli inside and breaking his leash off causing him to retrieve a backup board from the beach. With nine minutes left, Bruce and Griffin were put in a combo situation when Soli dropped the highest single-wave score of the heat of a 7.33. For the remainder of the final, the waves didn't produce any additional high-scoring potential, which left Soli eagerly counting down the clock to the final second, which he did. Congratulations to all the finalists, and Soli Bailey for being crowned the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion!

Day 3 Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Day 3 at the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro went down in the books! It was a day of heavy upsets and flawless conditions which concluded with Heat 14 of Round 3. Kelly Slater went down to an in-form Bruce Irons and young gun Seth Moniz, while Jack Robinson, who was a standout at last year's Volcom Pipe Pro, ended up losing priority and searching for a score in the dying minutes of his heat, but luck didn't deliver. Another story from today was a collision in Heat 6 by Bino Lopes and Joshua Burke who mistakenly tried crossing each other on their ways to Pipe and Backdoor. As the day progressed, the sun came out, things started heating up (no pun intended), and the highlight clips were served. John John exercised his home base knowledge and bagged a couple huge scores in typical JJ fashion, Makuakai Rothman got blown out of a flawless Backdoor barrel, Miguel Tudela snagged a textbook Pipe gem, and of course, there were some classic Pipeline wipeouts. Be sure to catch the recap video above for all of today's highlights and action!

Day 2 Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Epic surf turned up for Day 2 at the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro where we saw tons of high scoring waves and even a perfect 10-point ride! Once again the waves at Backdoor prevailed with cleaner conditions and higher stoke providing the competitors with an even playing field and many scoring opportunities. Standouts included Bruce Irons, Makuakai Rothman, and Mason Ho, who pumped his way through a long Backdoor barrel earning himself a well-deserved 9-point ride. The wind switched slightly towards the end of the day, but high scores were still being delivered as we ran through Round 2 and completed the first two heats of Round 3.

Day 1 Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
After many intense lei days on the North Shore of waiting for better weather conditions and optimal swell, the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro finally kicked off in fun, wedgy conditions with Round 1 surfing. The stormy weather circulating the North Shore the past week moved around the sand at Pipeline which caused the surfers to sit down the beach towards Backdoor and even Off The Wall. There were some insane waves ridden today, heavy wipeouts, and a handful of high scores. Tyler Newton snagged a clean 9-point ride in the Volcom Last Chance Qualifier heat to earn himself a spot into Round 2, and 15-year-old Pipe charger Wyatt McHale secured an equally impressive, and deep, 8.5 earning him a huge applause from the beach.

Daan van der Linden 2017 European Skater of the Year
It's been one crazy year for Daan van der Linden and to top it all of he was awarded with not only 'Video Part of the Year' for his part in Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening , but he was also crowned 'European Skater of the Year' for the SECOND year in a row at the Bright European Skateboard Awards in Berlin, Germany! Let's take a brief look at what Daan has accomplished in the past year below. After last years announcement that Daan was crowned 2015's 'European Skater of the Year' we added him to the global skate team, Vans and Anti-Hero also followed suit. To recap his 2015 we put together 'Volcom Presents: Real Life Happening - Daan van der Linden' which was a compilation of all his best clips of the year.

Photo: Keppens Prior to the release of our latest full length video Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening , Daan landed himself on the cover of Thrasher Magazine's July issue with a NBD noseblunt in San Francisco that ended his part in the video.

After Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening's release in Los Angeles, we took Daan on the road for the premiere tour from SF to NYC and around the world. Check out the afternoon we spent in NYC the day before the New York City premiere! In his Thrasher interview, Daan was asked which trip he enjoyed the most while filming for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening . His response was the one we went on to Australia & New Zealand with Thrasher to visit our friend Lee Ralph. With a heavy crew and great spots, Thrasher filmer P-Stone had to make 3 edits with all the footage, not to mention that New Zealand also had an entire section in Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening . Speaking of excess footage, we can't forget Daan's 'Over Stokes' and footage in the Euro Stokes edit too! In July we headed back to NYC for the Volcom X Anti Hero collection video that turned into Thrasher Magazine's The Vickie Report In August Anti Hero surprised Daan in Copenhagen by turning him PRO. Thrasher Magazine's P-Stone was along for the ride to capture it all. Lastly, Daan hopped in the van with us in Austin, Texas to head out to Sound on Sound Music Festival. After Kyle Walker won Skater of the Year he met up with us in San Francisco for the party and is currently back in Australia with Kyle Walker on his Skater of the Year trip! Two SOTY's in the same year on the same team!
